Have you heard the news? The Curve Fashion Festival is back for 2018! The UK's largest Plus Size Fashion & Retail Event is being held on Saturday 17th November 2018 at St Georges Hall, Liverpool.
We’ve already released some massive announcements already and just so you don’t miss a single thing, we’ve rounded up all there is to know about this year’s festival so far.
First up, this year TCFF is heading to a new venue! There’s nothing like a change of scenery to spice things up is there? We’ll be hosting this year’s event at St Georges Hall, Liverpool. It’s a beautiful venue that’s Instagram ready BEFORE we’ve even added our stamp to the place. We’ve had such good feedback from people who know St Georges hall. So, a new venue means… a NEW layout!
We’re keeping the main elements of TCFF such as the VIP area and How To Stage etc. but this year the layout will be different. St Georges Hall has break out areas that will allow us to spread things out a bit and for you to get some undisturbed time in each area. We’re so excited about a change in layout; it’s nice to have a little restyle every now and again.
St George’s Hall is DDA accessible; please contact them before your visit if you have any questions. Liverpool Lime Street station is just a minute’s walk away and Liverpool Central station is also a seven-minute stroll away.
Not only will the catwalk look a little different this year but we’ve already announced our first wave of brands that will be walking the runway. We’ve already announced these amazing brands: Debenhams, River Island, Yours Clothing, Missguided, Viva Voluptuous, Topsy Curvy, Pretty Little Thing, Eye 4 Fashion and Curvissa who’ll be showcasing their latest curve collections.
What’s more, we know you’ve all been waiting for is. The Curve Fashion Festival 2018 will be holding model-casting dates. The date will be announced really soon and it gives us a chance to find new diverse talent as well as working with some of our festival favourites.
Oh and of course the festival will be keeping up the traditional of having an exclusive collection or two.
There are a few new elements to this year’s event that we’re really excited about. We always take your feedback on board and it helps shape the event year after year. Firstly, our VIP ticket holders are in for some extra treats this year. Not only will your goody bags be worth over £100 but you’ll also be gifted an exclusive discount booklet to use on the day. Our new VIP lounge will have a complimentary cake and sweet stand to help keep you going though out the day, plus you’ll get a reserved spot at the catwalk shows. This year our VIP tickets are LIMITED. They sold out last year ahead of the festival and we’re way ahead of schedule in terms of VIP ticket sales this year, so to avoid disappointment PLEASE book yours early.
We’re super excited to announce Debenhams as part of our sponsorship team for #TCFF18. You can catch their latest lingerie collection on the catwalk, ask the Debenhams head designer questions on the How To Stage and get a Debenhams bra fit for a free measurement in a body positive environment. There will be so much to fit in this year you better bring your comfortable shoes.
The Beauty Hub
We know you love our beauty festival friends Doll Lashes and Reflections Glitter, just to name a couple. So we took your feedback on board and this year we’re launching a beauty hub! Featuring some fabulous makeup and beauty brands you’ll be able to treat yourself from top to toe in an area dedication to beauty. We’ve already announced some of the fabulous brands that’ll be there but stay tuned for even more.
We know that TCFF18 isn’t until November but we couldn’t help share some of the amazing retailers we already have lined up for you. We recently announced the first list of brands that’ll be in attendance. We shared OVER 20 fabulous names with you, but we’re not finished yet. Head to our brands page to find out who we’ve already announced. You won’t be disappointed.
We know that’s a lot to take in already, but in the next week or so we have another big announcement heading our way. We’ll be sharing all the details so far on our How To Stage, latest news on our Fashion Hall and lots more.
